What about the plan for housing on this location?
The Portland Housing Bureau has plans for this site.
In the next few years, this site will be redeveloped into townhomes designed to provide those previously displaced from this neighborhood an opportunity to purchase a home in the area. You can read about the Housing Bureau's plans for the Carey Boulevard site on their website. Habitat for Humanity is slated to be the developer, and the work is funded through the Metro Affordable Housing Bond.
This is all a larger part of the N/NE Neighborhood Housing Strategy being implemented through various parts of the City.
What about the goats?
We love the goats, and we know the community does too. Working with our partners (and the landowners) at the Portland Housing Bureau (PHB), we relocated the goats a short distance to the south. They remain on the same PHB plot, and share the space with the Village, until the future housing is built.
Please look at the Belmont Goats website if you would like to learn more about them or volunteer!
